HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War headset announced for Xbox One and Windows 10

HyperX has announced the CloudX Revolver Gears of War headset. Designed with help from Microsoft and Gears of War 4 developers The Coalition, the headset will begin shipping in September for Xbox One and Windows 10.

HyperX states the headset has a "gritty, battle-weathered design" that's been made to look like the art style on the recently announced Gears of War 4 Xbox One S console bundle:

This headset has been tested and approved by Microsoft, with additional compatibility for Windows. It has a 3.5mm (4 Pole) plug and 2M PC extension cable and features studio-grade sound stage that lets you hear your opponent more accurately from further away, making it ideal for FPS and open environment gameplay. In-line audio control makes it easy to adjust the volume and mute the microphone right from the cable. For the ultimate in comfort, HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War features a genuine leather headband and high-quality, award-winning HyperX memory foam that lets you play for hours. Its solid steel frame is built for long-lasting durability, and the detachable noise-cancellation microphone results in clearer voice quality and reduced background noise for a better in-game chat experience. It's certified by TeamSpeak and Discord, and compatible with Skype, Ventrilo, Mumble and RaidCall.

The headset will be shown first this week at the San Diego Comic-Con at the official Xbox booth, along with the booth at Nerd HQ. Pricing was not announced.
